IPL 2017: Mighty KKR take on struggling Kings XI Punjab


After Narine's dismissal, it was Chris Lynn alone who took the responsibility of scoring runs and kept on hitting handsome shots all across the ground.

Despite Chris Lynn's 52-ball 84, the bowlers did a superb job to restrict KKR to 153/6 in 20 overs chasing a modest 168.

However, Pandey managed to bring up his half-century stand with Lynn, but perished soon after.

To chase down the target, once again the pair of Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn entered the field and just like the previous game again Royal Challengers Bangalore, Narine gave flawless start by hitting a boundary off the first ball.

Manish Pandey (18, 23b, 1x4) did, swinging and missing time and again as Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma bowled some really good slower balls, with Matt Henry, on his IPL debut, ending the right-hander's misery in the first ball of the 18 over, leaving KKR needing 37 from 17.

Looking for a comeback into the contest, KXIP needed a few wickets as well as tight overs.

The home side also produced a fantastic fielding performance, including a brilliant catch by Axar Patel to dismiss Robin Uthappa. The hitting part was done by Maxwell as he was setting himself up for a big score.

Glenn Maxwell scored crucial 44 runs for KXIP against Knight Riders.

First to go was Vohra (25; 16b; 4x4, 0x6), falling to in-form fast bowler Umesh Yadav trying to play fine down the leg side with the ball kissing the glove and carrying to fit-again wicket-keeper Robin Uthappa. Chris Woakes (2-20) had Shaun Marsh clean bowled off a delivery which came back enough into the left-hander as Kings XI struggled at 56-3 in the ninth over. Their highest partnership was 61 for the fourth wicket between Maxwell and Wriddhiman Saha (38).

After settling down, Maxwell started to open up as he smashed Colin de Grandhomme for two massive sixes, taking Punjab's total to 83 in the 12th over.

In the sixteenth over, Maxwell hit the wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav for consecutive sixes, but was then outfoxed by the bowler.

Maxwell lofted left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav (2-34) for two sixes in the 16th over but was brilliantly caught off the next delivery by Woakes at long-on before Yadav had Saha stumped. Captain Gautam Gambhir scored just 8 runs. KXIP, despite losing wickets at the back end, finished with a flourish thanks to Rahul Tewatia's cameo of 15 from 8 balls.
